    I was corresponding with 'ShadowProphet' as we were talking about 'teeth'

    Those molars we use for crunching our food.
    Was just admiring myself in my car mirror. Was I driving? I am not telling you.

    Well...I thought perhaps Hollywood must ave missed out here/there.

    You know how we get these women in front admiring themselves whilst driving?
    She must have had a glimpse of me and nearly crashed her car.

    I was like one of these hippopotamuses at feeding time.

    Yep they are all there!

    I use my 'mush' as my avatar a lot.....cos I like that rugged Sylvester Stallone look. We almost look like twins.

    A lot of you guys are afraid to use mug shots in case you get accused of ...the....I will say it...."THE EGO!!!"

    Well some member once had a dismantling job on my mush. Had not really noticed much...scaffolding or whatever.

    "Looks like one of them wart-hogs if you look closely "

    So I looked at a picture of a wart-hog and the blooming thing seemed to be looking back at me. (probably wanted feeding)

    Anyway...I started using pig avatars and the blooming likeness!!!!

    Has nothing to do with ego, some prefer anonymity online...

    A bit of anonymity is wise. Once put out there it’s permanent

    If by some miracle we could instantly see each other in all our glory as we type I bet we wouldn’t be saying

    Nah, it's not Ego with me,

    [​IMG]

    I have had my share of ego over the years, But I learned decades ago, The kind of attention people can purchase with looks is the kind of attention a person really doesn't want. Some of the women I dated only dated me for my looks, Those women all left or did me wrong in some way. Looks don't matter at all, Anything truly important in life has nothing to do with how someone looks.

    My advice, If you meet someone who thinks you are just so very attractive. Distance yourself from that person.
    Because nothing important in this world was ever gained by just looks alone, And if people treat you differently based on their attraction to you. It's best to find new people to surround yourself with, Shallow people don't make great friends. I know from experience.

    Well...okay....

    I do as well to a degree...but I can never understand why people like to hide what they look like?

    It is said that a totally 'different beast' takes over when we are on line because no one can see us?

    Why do they give...like an illusion by which they seem to lose identity?

    Is this my ego talking now?

    The only reason why I never give any other details about myself is because others can attack me if they know where I live?

    Had this before from a Russian guy and that was serious. Apparently I did not agree with a lot of what he used to say and joked a little.

    He got nasty and sent me an anonymous email after finding out my birthday and email address and said I would never make my next birthday.

    It was serious as it was when I was demonstrating 'Remote Sensing' My guides told me his town in Auckland and I got straight to the police.

    How do you explain these things to the police?

    At the time I was using an avatar of Sherlock Holmes and the policeman's name was PC Watson.

    I reported this to the administrator and he thought I was joking!
    An investigation got under way and the joking stopped.

    Everything that I have ever written is the truth apart from joking at times to 'lighten the atmosphere'
    Ia m always portrayed as 'nasty' but Ia m not. It stifles conversations and allows others who do not agree with your points as a 'negative person' to gang up on you.

    You get angry and you laugh it off and that is how it normally goes. Back in 2008, I stopped laughing as they challenged my very substance as a psychic researcher and that if I did not prove myself, that i should leave.

    I got challenged by this guy who kept demanding more and more tests (as you have seen) I had no choice, because if I did not take up these challenges then more and more members would attack me as to show that I was a troll as to get me removed. No one likes a psychic because it makes them out as inferior.

    My guides would not let that happen and said they would stand by me.

    If you read one of my Remote Tests it contains a title:- "Swalli's Test Let Us Watch"
    He demanded that a hurricane hits his town of Maine within 2 weeks as to show to others that I was a fake!

    I am not a fake and this is my ego!

    I conducted the test because I had to. If I walked away, this challenge would spread on the search engines and follow me wherever I went!

    Just imagine what would have happened if I had lost?

    There would have been about 500 cyber attacks on my post. As I had won...I got nothing. How come it does not work both ways?

    That would have been the end of it...but they demanded more and they got pretty hurt. Hence the threat of an attack.

    They did not see this as a psychic ability but instead that I was able to hack forums and get intto their computers to steal personal information which no one could possibly have known!

    I got reported to both the FBI and CIA but was lucky that nothing happened as a threat to National Security.

    As a moderator you 'brush this off' as nothing. This is why I always use old posts to talk about a subject that I love.

    Unfortunately some of these old posts are nasty as I cannot help that.

    Now getting to the main point:-

    The only thing that they cannot trace is my face. I would normally have loved to give my name and my location but I cannot do that.

    Four reasons:-

    1) I do not wish my neighbours knowing anything about me as gossip spreads. Nor the authorities because it is easy for someone to just tap in your name and base your credibility on what they see on their screens.l Just imagine if I applied fora job? Or if someone wants to hurt me?

    2) There are millions of people in this world and anyone reading these posts can take a dislike because it may affect their way of thinking or religion. It can cost them as little as £6,000 to pay someone to kill you. This Russian guy had escaped from Russia when it split up and made a lot of money using the 'Black Market'

    3)I get accused of multiple IDs saying that I had been ousted and had pretended to be someone else.
    This is georgk for the past 15 years no other. I have three IPs one at each house.

    4) I hate to be false and hide. Only when I have to. Everything you will ever find out about me, is what I had written here. I can recollect every event as they are the truth. Test me or whatever, you will never find any faults or contradictions.



    *********

    I am not saying that you or anyone else is false...as now you know where this 'ego' comes in!

    I say this is ME as I will not lose my identity.

    I am proud of myself, beliefs and aspirations and want folks to also realise that Ia m a real person who does not change from one to the other, that remains me who they can see. For now and for always.

    :)

    Hay up mate!

    Nice to see you.
    You look a great guy....Never look down. Good looking chaps like ourselves should look the world in the eye!

    Yer I know you are looking at your computer.

    Cannot make 'nivek's avatar out???? Thought it was an otter coming out of a pipe? Hope I had not insulted anyone/anything?

    Could be his pet fish?

    (hey...who said I ain't good looking I have always looked like Sylvester Stallone. ..."Dornt...push me!")

    Seriously ShadowProphet....nice picture.

    It's kind of an oldie, I'm a little more grey now, Just a bit. If I'm not mistaken, several months ago, Nivek posted some pics of him at work, I think we saw him in those. I can't be sure.


    They say the grass is always greener on the other side, And I think that's true, I've been trying to sharpen my mind for a while now. In spite of the fact that In many ways I'm losing it. What I would give to have a deeper understanding of particle and astrophysics. Things like how someone looks, That can get a person into some interesting situations.

    You were speaking about being kind of sheltered earlier? I was too, I think it probably shows. When the schools wanted to send me to a Lexington home for gifted children, they called it an optimal environment. Luckily they don't do this anymore, After that point, my parents sheltered me to the point of literal abuse, I couldn't even go outside on the front lawn. being sheltered most of ones life can lead to some interesting problems, Like not really knowing when someone is joking or how to interact with people. I'm still terribly awkward till this day.

    Some people could say well, My parents must have been mean, Nah, It's just after the school tried to take me away we moved and they changed me to what they call "Homebound" That is where teachers would come to my home to teach me. It's kind of like a poor man's private schooling I guess. My first true day of any kind of real freedom was when I was eighteen, I moved into an apartment against my parent's wishes. when they asked me why I told them it was because it was important that I have a life lol


    Imagine the lessons I learned about women and it was at an awkwardly late stage in my life. It's not good to shelter people too much. Till this day, Old habits die hard. I'd rather be in a room by myself without any company than leave my home. It can really mess people up, But, I feel my case was probably an extreme case though. Even if, I didn't have these Bipolar issues, I'd still have trouble communicating with people in a non-awkward fashion.

    We take the cards we are dealt I suppose. But, I learned really important stuff, Way to late in life as a result.

    I don’t downplay the value of looks. It is responsible for many a procreation in the world. For the others, there is beer...

    We should all try to look our best. Doesn’t mean we need to wear expensive show off fashion. We just need to take care of our hair and teeth, and bathe.

    Humans are pretty awesome creatures. As smelly and oily as we are, we seem to be pretty good at keeping ourselves presentable. For some reason, as smelly and gaseous and stuff as we are, we still attract one another... good thing... life would be so boring otherwise.

    My avatar represents pesonality...
    A dramatis persona.
    I like that.
    It shows my fun side.

    Okay... it really is me.., there... I said it.... this whole time you are chatting with a monkey with attitude...

    Interesting that we purchase various security products to keep our computers safe (or at least make us feel that way).
    Hell, you can easily install off the shelf gadgetry and have your house wired in ways that would make George Orwell ill at ease. And yet the overwhelming majority fails to understand the implications of what they are doing, how they are doing it and consequences. For the most part they aren't dire, but potentially can be. And then, assuming we have properly implemented some sort of security to protect our information and identity immediately forgo all of it to gratuitously post personal stuff all over Facebook, etc. Human nature.

    There is always that one you see across the room, and you can’t get it out of your head. You keep wanting to look their way and see what they are doing. You don’t want to stare, but you do, and when they look at you, you try to look away before they can catch you looking at them.
    Or you just keep staring... but that can be dangerous.. eye contact is the next jump into deeper water... oh no... they see ME too. Now they are watching me!

    Mutual connections... sometimes we try to ignore them, because we are settled, and we do not want anything to unsettle us... but we still want that connection... strangers... all possibility and you are full of curiosity...

    Attraction is indeed a powerful thing.
